An Angel's prayer

E'en wearing a mask An angels prayer may ask Christ's peace to abide. The heart should not hide, A soul that is sketched Inside grain of wood If the memory is etched For the common good! Poetry by myself I faintly saw this angelic design in the grain of a slab of firewood on the evening of January 4, 2022 and photographed it before it was tossed in the wood stove. I traced around it and brought it out clearer from the background in photo shop. It reminded me of a divine spirit praying for peace and harmony in the world and became inspired to write my poetry.
